I didn't have a problem with Leah in any part of the books. She's just been hurt and really has no one to talk too. I don't think she was mean to Jacob in his POV at all. Jacob has his moments too, and I thought it was funny the way they were going at each other. You know when you like someone you treat them badly at first? That's how I read his POV. For instance:
"You have to be the most self-absorbed person alive, Leah. I'd hate to shatter the dream world you live in--the one where the sun
is orbiting the place where you stand--so I won't tell you how little I care what your problem is. Go. Away."
"Just look at this from my perspective for a minute, okay?" she continued as if I hadn't said anything.
If she was trying to break my mood, it worked. I started laughing. The sound hurt in strange ways.
I don't want to type out some more, so I'm skipping to the other part:
Peeved as I was, I still felt guilty when I watched the spasm of pain shoot across her face.
Did Jacob ever feel guilty about saying certain things to Bella? Yes and No!
Again I had to fight the rage. Maybe, if not for Leah, it would be good to let the heat change me into a creature who could deal with it better. A creature with instincts so much stronger than human emotions. An animal who couldn't feel pain in the same way. A different pain. Some variety, at least. But Leah was running now, and I didn't want to share her thoughts. I cussed under my breath for taking away that escape, too. My hands were shaking in spite of me. What shook them? Anger? Agony? I wasn't sure what I was fighting now.
when he went home Billy says talking about Sue Clearwater: "I don't know how she deals with that daughter of hers, though. Now Sue, she would of made one hell of a wolf. Leah's more of a wolverine." He chuckled at his own joke. He waited briefly for my response, but didn't seem to see my blank, bored-out-of-my-mind expression. Most days that bugged him. I wished he would shut up about Leah. I was trying not to think about her.
after reading the invitation and him leaving: I got up from the table, shrugging out of my t-shirt as I stood. Hopefully Leah had gone home by now.
1. He was laughing and it was strange to him? Why?
2. What's he fighting?
3. Why doesn't he want to think about Leah?
1. I think he was healing and it felt strange to him. Like when he was helping Bella heal, Leah in her own weird way was trying to help him heal.
2. I think he's fighting his feelings for her. It might sound strange, but the person you least expect to fall in love with is usually right in front of you.
3. He doesn't want to hurt her. He already feels guilty about saying stuff to her and doesn't want to keep doing it.
In conclusion, I think their good for each other. Maybe why Leah is so mean to Bella is because she likes Jacob. Naturally, not imprinting. What if while he's away he's thinking about moving on. He keeps thinking about Leah and he realizes he could live a happy life with her. This is what i'm hoping for. I'm not really a Jacob fan, but I think these two belong together. Why else would SM put his POV at the end of Eclipse?
I think this was the longest post I've ever done!
